Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has a new Playlist for the week of Jan. 18. Here's what fans can expect from the update.

With Season 2 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 delayed until Feb. 15, players are eager for any fresh update to the game. Although sometimes updates can leave players disappointed, this week, MW2 is bringing back a fan-favorite mode.

Modern Warfare 2 Playlist Update: Jan. 18

As announced by Infinity Ward, MW2 players can expect the following modes in the newest Playlist update:

  • Shipment 24/7 and Tier 1 Shipment
  • Cyber Attack
  • CDL Moshpit

After being removed from last week's playlist, Shipment 24/7 is back. The iconic map is a great way for players to grind camos and gain XP. The small location brings 12 players together in constant, chaotic gameplay. Tier 1 Shipment is a remastered Hardcore mode, where players have less health, minimal HUD, and friendly fire.

Cyber Attack combines elements of Search & Destroy and Sabotage to create an exciting SnD experience. Two teams of six battle for a neutral bomb that must be taken and planted in the enemy's Data Center. Unlike traditional SnD, teammates can be revived. The round will not end until the bomb detonates or an entire team is killed.

CDL Moshpit is the best way to play Call of Duty League maps and modes as players wait for Ranked Play. Although there is no ladder to climb, players can still experience Hardpoint, Search & Destroy, and Control under the CDL ruleset.
